Dropping out of school in the 9th grade with the desire to earn money to help support his family, Nguyen Ngoc Nhut (from Can Tho) chose to work as an iron welder. In an oversight, Nhut got tangled in an iron bar and was electrocuted. Nhat’s family took Nhut to seek treatment for two months from Can Tho to Cho Ray Hospital (HCMC), but they were unable to save him and had to amputate his hands.
When I had an incident, I wanted to find a brother and sister with the same learning situation, it was very difficult, I didn’t know what to do, so I fell into a deadlock. Therefore, if possible in the future, I want to connect people with disabilities, create an environment to share about life and work so that everyone can learn more from each other.

Back to the incident classroom
“In the beginning, I felt stuck when I had to start all over again, from eating, living, dressing, brushing my teeth… I got stuck when I didn’t know what to do to support myself, so don’t depend on that. Always in the family” – Nhat shared.
Seeing brothers with disabilities teaching in the primary school, Nhat suddenly realized that when he didn’t have his hands, the only way was to study and learn. Nhat decided to go back to school, finish high school and fulfill the college dream he never imagined.
In 2014, Nhut was supported to go to Korea for a year for treatment and prosthetics. Although he was unsuccessful, upon receiving everyone’s love, “the amputee” seemed to be resurrected.
Noticing everyone’s hearts for her, Nhut set her dream of becoming an international student to return to Korea to learn more about this country and people instead of thanking her.
Nguyen Ngoc Nhut is currently a third-year student, majoring in marketing, at Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology. Master Phan Trong Hieu – Head of the Korean Language Department, Korean and Vietnamese Institute of Technology – said that Nhut recently received second prize in a Korean language contest organized by the King Se Jong Center in collaboration with the school.
“Especially one of the very special students, your academic record is very good and you have received many scholarships” – commented Mr. Hi I.

Four years ago, he set up the TikTok channel and Fanpage “Cut love life” mainly posting everyday scenes, how to use everyday items without hands and volunteer trips to spread energy. .

But Nhut decided to choose Ho Chi Minh City as a place to study, be independent and want a completely new environment to develop.
Nhat loves volunteer programs. Nhat used to participate by giving gifts to needy people in Dak Lak, giving gifts to needy children, elderly people living alone in Ho Chi Minh City and also participated as MC for Center for Disability and Development – DRD Vietnam fundraising program coordinated with the US Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City to arrange.

Build your own transport to open the future
Nguyen Ngoc Nhut said that you really want to be independent, but to be independent you must be free. When I have no means of transport, I stay at home in a cramped environment, prone to depression. “I decided to ask someone to make prosthetic arms attached to motorcycles so that I can go to the places I want to go, increasing my chances of hearing more and studying more. I await the analysis. approve documents to study abroad in Korea in August”, he said. Nhut.
